president obama of the investigation of the c.i.a.? >> i would say that with regard to that issue, what we did was conduct the investigation in the way that we normally conduct criminal investigations. we do so in a way that -- so they can be seen as being done in an impartial way. we follow the facts. we do not share outside the justice department, outside the f.b.i., the facts of ongoing investigations. we made the determines as we were going through the matter that there was not a threat to national security. had we made the determination that a threat to national security existed we would, of course, have made that known to the president and also to appropriate members on the hill. but as we went through the investigation, looked at the facts and tried to examine them as they developed, we felt very secure in the knowledge that a national security threat did not exist that warranted the sharing of that information with the white house or with the hill. but when we got to a point in the investigation, it was very late in the investigation after a very critical interview occurred on the
